“**Master of Math - Knowledgeable, Professional & Patient Tutor**”

Hello Students and Parents,

Math has long been the source of dread and misery for countless students. Many have often given up by mistakenly buying into the false notion that they "just don't have it" or that math is "too hard" for them. But my firm belief is that anyone can learn

Gerard has many great qualities as a tutor. His tutoring contributed to my son's significant improvement in precalculus. Prior to tutoring sessions with Gerard, my son did not grasp the basic concepts of precalculus, and his grade had declined. Once Gerard started working with my son, precalculus became more clear and comprehensible to him for the first time. I remember my son expressing his excitement at his own success by saying, "I actually understand precalculus now!" In addition to being extremely patient, kind and professional, Gerard's teaching techniques simplify complicated mathematical concepts in a manner that's easy for a struggling student to understand. With Gerard's assistance, my son raised his grade by almost two letter grades. Gerard was instrumental in my son's success in understanding precalculus and ultimately raising his grade, and for that, I am very grateful to Gerard. I also appreciated Gerard's flexibility; he always tried to accommodate our requests for extra tutoring sessions even upon short notice. My son was a success story, so I highly recommend Gerard for anyone in search of a patient tutor who is a master of mathematics and has an exceptional ability to explain complicated mathematical concepts at the student's current level of understanding. Thank you so much Gerard! Our family appreciates all that you have done!!!

Gerard is a great tutor! He takes you step by step on problems that you are having trouble completing, while going back and bridging gaps from prior math lessons. He allows you to try and solve the problems before he goes in correcting mistakes, and when there are errors in your answer he walks through them with you to see were something went wrong.

My boys really enjoy working with him and look forward to him coming because he is able to reach them through a great knowledge of the material, able to use modern resources like the computer and apps to not only teach them while he is here, but give them tools to work with on their own.

My son was very impressed with Gerard. He was personable and got right to work. Was able to accomplish a lot in an hour. I plan to use him again for all of my high schoolers.

Taylor found Gerard to be patient and knowledgeable. I asked if he were in a classroom setting do you think you would understand him...she said she would and he would be able to answer questions without dancing around it. Taylor expressed that his pace was just right...and did not make her feel awkward in her need for help...

So far out first meeting, he took the time to understand our needs and spent time with our daughter to help her set goals for the school year and will help her not only with school work but to stay organized this year.

Gerard was very helpful with all aspects of learning radicals. I feel more confident going into my upcoming math class.

I'm taking calc 1 over the summer at Palomar. I was so behind because the teacher has to go through everything so fast because it's only an 8 week class. After even just one session with Gerard I felt 100 times more comfortable with the material!

I was nervous about hiring a tutor since I'm an adult who needs extra help with elementary math. Upon exchanging messages with Gerard before the initial meeting, he was very explanatory about what I should expect and ideas as how accomplish some of my goals. Once I met him, I liked him right away and felt comfortable as often times I have a lot of math anxiety. He provided me with some helpful resources as well to help strengthen my lack of algebraic skills. I am looking forward to working with him!

Gerald has been tutoring our daughter for quite a while now. He is very through and patient. He ensures that the practice problems are well suited for current classwork, and he explains the materials clearly and concisely. Since he has been tutoring our daughter, she has significantly improved her academic performance and her grades. We highly recommend him as a math tutor.

Out of all the tutors I've had for math, Gerard is without a doubt the best. He's very thorough and explains the problems a lot better than my professor did. Thanks to him, I've definitely improved. I look forward to working with him again in the future.

My son received an F in Geometry for the semester. After working with Gerard he now has a B! He works to match what he is doing to the teacher's requirements and even the teacher said that my son has improved tremendously.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Extensive experience tutoring Algebra 1 topics. These included solving linear equations in two variables both algebraically and graphically; solving quadratic equations by factorization and by utilizing the quadratic formula.

Also taught foundational concepts in Algebra such as the number line, inequalities, roots, and functions.
